In your first request you said, you want the count also. Is that so? Or you want only to display the files?

Correct, The count also please. Find a FOLDER named FTP_FILES and show me all files actually (not just *.txt) and if a sub-directory exists under FTP_FOLDER then show the files from those sub-directories as well.

Print the path name of the FTP_FILES or Sub Directory if exists,
Print files available in that path
Print number of files in that path.
Print total number of files found from all paths.

Is this what you need?
Code:
find . -type d -name 'FTP_FILES' | xargs -I % sh -c 'echo dir:%; printf files: ; ls % | wc -l'
